==ELC Play Road Mat==
These play road mats are surely a must have for every little boy or even girl who enjoys to play with cars. We have had our one for a good many years now, since Jack was around 18 months old and he still plays on the mat now as much as he did when we first bought it for him.
If I remember rightly it cost around the £15 region from the Early Learning Centre and this seemed like a really reasonable price for any sort of rug let alone one which doubles up as a toy accessory too! They can be bought in various different places as I am sure I have seen one in Argos and also in a few high street shops too so it is worth having a look around for either the best quality and the best price.
However I really can't fault this Early Learning Centre one on either the price or indeed the quality of the item. It looks more or less as good a condition today as it did when we first bought it and it has been on jacks bedroom floor all this time. In our our flat it was covering a rather nasty felt tip pen mark which I couldn't shift so it was rather handy in that respect and now it is down on his new bedroom floor it is protecting his carpet from any other marks or stains he probably will make on the carpet.
This rug itself is a short type of tough felt like material and it is easy to clean with a damp soapy cloth and doesn't seem to mark easily which is a good thing. The size of the rug is big enough for a couple of children to sit and play nicely with tons of cars and still have plenty of room to move the cars around.
The rug features plenty of different places for the child to take their cars to such as the school, the police station or indeed the petrol station. There are plenty of roads and roundabouts for cars to be pushed around and it is really a great item to have with any toy cars to make for an authentic playing time.
The rug is rubber backed although we do still find it moves position on Jack's carpet on a daily basis and needs straightening up but this is no real problem and I did use rug tape in the flat to secure it but this removed some of the rubber backing when we came to move and needed to get the rug unstuck from the carpet.
All in all I have to say that this is a really fantastic item to have in any boys bedroom. It has endless play possibilities and is ideal to have if your child likes to play with little cars. Of course the larger sized vehicles don't really fit well onto the rug or the roads but this doesn't ever really stop Jack from using them on there.
It has to be a top score of 5 out of 5 stars for this play road mat as it is a good quality item which has years of play and can hide a multitude of stains and protect your carpet from more! I think that justifies a high recommendation!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
